Default Travis Henry - Are we interested or not?

I would have added to the Henry thread already but it was locked.

Quote:
The Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans appear to be the three teams most interested in a deal for Bills RB Travis Henry. The Texans are an odd suitor due to the presence of RBs Domanick Davis, Jonathan Wells, Tony Hollings and Vernand Morency, but there's no question the Jaguars and Titans could use Henry's services. Each team has a No. 1 back (Fred Taylor, Chris Brown) with health issues and would rather not enter the season with a lack of backfield depth.
So are we interested in Henry or not?? Maybe he didn't get the office memo?

My guess would be "not". I think that DD will carry most of the rock this season and will share some time to keep his legs fresh for the later part of the games. I don't think we are in that bad of a spot to see us signing Henry. But I'll play devi's advocate here, ,I am all in favor of keeping DD.

Perhaps we are in this only to keep Henry away from Jacksonville and TN? Beats me, but we will see when we see.

We really don't need another back unless he is clearly a tier 1 or probably tier 1 back. Henry is not that.

We don't need Henry. We have DD whos done nothing but be great, we just drafted Morency so give him a chance, and we also have Hollings who I would like to see more often

Do you really? Then why can't you see that what they have in front of them is the best option for them right now? He has performed remarkably well in an offense that has been trying to find it's identity along with the learning curve of an expansion team, along with the learning curve of coming into the NFL...shall I continue? :brickwall

How can you not like DD? A 1st rd level player who we got in the 3rd? You gotta be crazy not to like him.

There's always gonna be someone who thinks the grass is always greener on the other side. I say....go find another team to complain about...cause you are barking up the wrong tree. I have a hard time with people pointing out how he has a fumbling problem...I forgot what the numbers were but they were rediculously low for the amount of touches he got throughout the season. So, "texansneedarbin05"....what is the basis of your complaint?

After the 1st 2 games last season the number is ZERO. His fumbles per carry last year--1 fumble per 77 carries.

Travis Henry has fumbled 1 time per 41.8 carries.

Oh, and of the guys who rushed for more yards than DD last year (that would be 10 RB's) only 2 had less fumbles.

Well his fumbling problem is bad but I watched the game last year and he looked to slow to hit the holes and not big enough to make holes! Thats what the problem is! Sure its basis if you want a slow small back why dont YOU go find another team?

Thats becasue alot of are spilting the Carrys between 2 backs. Stanley and Bettis probably both have less Yds. Than DD But there better.

That was my 1st thought when I read it. 1 year deal, then trade him B-4 the deadline to some team in the NFC.

Not to B technical but we got 'em in the 4th round. Promise. But you're right, he is a 1st round talent coming into his own.
